Long gone are the days of throwing a basic brick pattern tile job or 4×4 backsplash up.

Tile manufacturers continue to up their game in providing the consumer with increasingly artistic ways to design their spaces. From subtle and traditional to bold and bright. You’re going to be glad you have a design team to help you wade through the countless options. Choosing which tiles to use is the hard part, loving the look after install is a given.



An old favorite that is anything but tired is the subway tile. Look for debossed, textured, glossy, extra wide or extra narrow versions of this classic look. And although the traditional brick pattern layout is still a rock solid choice, you may choose to shake that up a bit with a chevron install or by having some tiles running perpendicular around the border. There are many different install possibilities to play with.



Ceramic tiles are no longer your grandma’s ceramic. Laser cut ceramics will dazzle your eye with their patterns and design. Quilted ceramics are a way to go if you’re looking for more understated beauty than dazzle.



Laser cut glass and stone also offer museum-quality works of art ready for permanent install on your walls.



Mix it up! Can’t choose just one? Neither can we! Layer your look by mixing rectangular field tile with a mosaic or larger stone tile. Add in decorative pencil trim for extra detail.



On your floors, go warm style/low maintenance with a beautiful porcelain wood tile. Or go bold with a pattern or color in a luxurious cement tile or some of the cement-look ceramics now available. Skip the area rug in the bathroom and make yourself one out of a mosaic inlay.



In butler’s pantry or dry bar areas, consider taking a break from the tile and using a wood backsplash for that unexpected design element.
With your sense of style, limitless options and the pro designers at Karr Bick by your side, the results will be beautifully you and anything but ordinary. Start dreaming!
